The Packers’ run defense was ranked dead last through the first half of the 2014 season, giving up an average of 176 rushing yards per game through week 4. Defensive coordinator Dom Capers made sure that changed. After Green Bay’s week 9 bye, they move outside linebacker Clay Matthews to inside linebacker to help stop the run. The next week, the Packers beat the Bears in a lopsided game, 55 to 14. Chicago averaged only 2.3 yards per carry that game.
The NCAA should indeed pay their D1 athletes. Exploitation means treating someone unfairly to make money off of them. The NCAA is a business that gets away with exploiting athletes for billions of dollars. The National College Athletic Association makes money because there is a low supply for college level athletes, yet a great demand to see these athletes perform. So the NCAA, in a way monopolized the scant amount of college level athletes.
That a full paid scholarship is plenty enough (McCauley). The ones who introduce this opinion into the conversation fail to understand the daily struggles a college athlete suffers. Without any outcome, college football players are putting forth their utmost effort for no cause. The twenty to twenty five thousand dollar scholarships do not even put a dent in the billions brought in by the NCAA. This is why this situation is so commonly debated as people believe it is highly unfair to the student athletes.
Compare the NFL to NCAA college football. The Detroit Lions’ (NFL) Ford Field holds 65,000 total. The Tennessee Vols’ (NCAA) Neyland Stadium hold 102,455. Fans pay on average about $99 per ticket per game, if a season ticket holder, for Detroit Lions. Fans of the Volunteers who decide to become
Quest for number one in college football Bowl Championship Series (BCS) is the most controversial college football system when trying to choose the best teams to play for national championship, because there are always questions about how teams are picked. In 1972 a bowl coalition was formed and attempted to implement some sort of structure to help the top ranked teams in the BCS and Non-BCS play each other, which was unsuccessful. Membership to the BCS can be very profitable; the BCS bowl games can bring in millions in revenue per year, whereas non-BCS bowl games receive about 180,000 per year. Which means the rich keep getting rich and the poor, struggle. Additional each BCS conference champion is guaranteed a bowl game regardless of record,
Thursday night and for the third time in a row I was not mentioned in the starting line up. I was completely dishearten at this point. 65 minutes in the game, my coach told me to warm up. I was thrilled and nervous, but ready to play. At minute 70, ten minutes before the game to end the ball went out of bounds, the referee stopped the game as my coach signaled for a substitution, and I entered the pitch.
In my opinion the college athletes SHOULD be paid.I believe this because the brobdingnagian broadcasting companies rake in billions of dollars yet they do not pay their core money fabricators.I designate it is only fair because the athletes work their butts off and yet they do not get a sole penny.Isn’t that unfair and corrupted? In my opinion that’s a brobdingnagian exploit in the system of making and spending money. “There’s an issue of fairness,” and “The question that’s being raised here is . . .
College athletes deserve to be paid because they are the only ones not being paid in the college sports industry. The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) generates eleven billion dollars annually, some of which could, and should go to college athletes. “USA Today reported last year just how much money the top 10 coaches in college football made. Nick Saban from Alabama topped the list earning roughly $5.5 million in 2013 alone” (Seibold). The coaches are making millions of dollars and the players aren’t.
A growing debate in the National Collegiate Athletic Association is whether or not student athletes should be paid. The controversy began in 2011 after three hundred coaches and athletes signed a petition to pay college-level athletes, and since then other athletes have made several more arguments. The NCAA has rightfully denied all of the requests, saying they include too much. To pay student athletes could be hugely expensive for colleges, especially because they would not only pay for each athlete’s degree and equipment, but also provide a salary and give bonuses revenue for tournaments. Moreover, college athletes should not be paid because there is not enough money, it takes away a student’s focus from schoolwork, and not every athlete is guaranteed a professional career after graduating; however it is argued that it they are already paid in a way.
My freshman and sophomore year we had coach Baker and he seemed to try to make us better we just couldn 't fix the problem. Last year and this year we have coach Dirks and coach Hughes. They don 't push us as hard as they should and they honestly don 't coach as good ask coach Baker did. That 's one
The NCAA has been known for (National College Athletic Association) awarding a large sum of $1.5 billion in athletic scholarships each year (Lewis and Williams 22). Such benefit allows athletes to earn the priceless value of a education for free (Roberts). Not only that, but by obtaining an degree an individual adds almost $17, 089 per year to a future career pay (Schneider). Studies have concluded that these degrees are almost unearned. According to former tutor at the University of North Carolina, students conduct “alleged academic fraud and corruption” through easy grading and “so-called paper classes” (Neuhauser 11).
“It’s Time To Get Paid College Style” On December 30, 2016 the University of Michigan played Florida State University in the Capital One Orange Bowl. All-American tight-end Jake Butt tore his right ACL in the first quarter of the game. Jake Butt said, "I should be the example of why college athletes should be getting paid in college or why I can 't use my name to benefit off my likeness in college," Butt said after Michigan 's Pro Day on Friday (Rothstein). Jake believes that players should be compensated for what they do on the field. Jake has declared for the NFL Draft in April, but he knows that with his injury instead of being a first round pick he will now most likely be a third or fourth round pick.
Human resources are arguably, the most important aspect of any business, and nobody understands that better than the sports industry. Many companies often overlook the importance of their employees, but the ones that have figured it out like Google, Boston Consulting Group and SAS, who continuously rate among the top for Fortune Magazine 's: 100 best companies to work for, see a positive correlation in company performance because they understand that happy employees equal satisfied customers and lead to more revenue for the company. Unfortunately, the College Football Hall of Fame fell in the majority of companies that don 't stress the importance of human resources. If given a grade for how human resources were handled at The College Football Hall of Fame, it would get a "C." There were components that were well organized, such as the recruiting and payroll strategy, but other areas such as scheduling and performance evaluation that were organized poorly. One of the smart, strategic moves the College Football Hall of Fame made was to target and recruit recent college graduates in the sports related majors, current college students and seasoned hospitality/service industry workers, which gave the company a good mixture of youth and experience.
Scholarships help pay for the athlete’s tuition but do not give them enough money to support themselves. Ramogi Huma, president of the National College Players Association, which is trying to win recognition as the first union for college athletes said, "For the last 15 years the NCAA and the schools were screaming this would destroy us, we can 't afford it," Huma said. "Now even the smallest schools have found way to pay it,” This is a president that is understanding why this issue has being a nightmare for athletes. He has opened his eyes to the argument of formers and actuals players, and understand them. Now he is moving on into figuring a solution for it.
Players in other leagues, like the National Football League, who don 't command comparable salaries even though their league brings in way more money. The most outspoken NFL player has been Duke Ihenacho, a safety for the Washington Redskins. He tweeted, "All this guaranteed money NBA throwing. Meanwhile the NFL, which generates the most money won 't even make the league minimum $1M." He added later, "Yes $1M minimum.
